National Online Informative References Program OLIR

Derived Relationship Mapping

The Derived Relationship Mapping (DRMs) Analysis Tool provides Users the ability to generate DRMs for Reference Documents with a Focal Document of the Users’ choice. The DRMs are non-authoritative and represent a starting point when attempting to compare Reference Documents. Refer to Sections 3.3 – 3.6 of NISTIR 8278, National Online Informative References (OLIR) Program: Program Overview, Benefits and Uses  for additional guidance around understanding and utilizing the tool. 

After creating a Display Report, Users can download the report in either a comma-separated value (CSV) file format or a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file format.

If interested in participating in the OLIR program, please refer to the Informative Reference submission page. To access the current list of Focal Document submission templates, please refer to the Focal Document Templates page.
